Workshops associated with Acoustics 2005 provide opportunity for practitioners to engage in professional discussion of current issues in a semi-formal setting.
All workshops are integrated into the conference program in 50 minute sessions and cost of attendance is included with conference registration, unless stated otherwise.
- Modelling Environmental Noise
- Noise Impacts on Marine Animals
- Truck Engine-Brake Noise
- Construction Noise Management Proposals for NSW
- Building Acoustics - BCA
- Future for Acoustics in Australia (Plenary Forum)
Coordinator: Neil GrossNoise Impacts on Marine Animals
Aim: Review the current state of modelling and where it is heading.
Scope: Overview of modelling, capabilities, performance, limitations and pitfalls. Modelling into the future.
Coordinator: Dr Chandra Salgado-KentTruck Engine-Brake Noise
Aim: Discuss international priorities for research on noise impacts on marine animals.
Scope: Known impacts on marine animals, effectiveness of controls on impacts, current research. Perspectives from industry, regulators and researchers on future emphasis and research needs.
Coordinator: Bruce DowdellConstruction Noise Management Proposals for NSW
Aim: Provide update on progress on reducing the impact of truck engine-brake noise.
Scope: Characteristics and impact of this pervasive and intrusive noise. Achievements, proposed initiatives and the outlook for effective management of this issue.
Coordinator: Roger TreagusBuilding Acoustics - BCA
Aim: Introduce a new approach to managing construction noise and obtain views of Society members.
Scope: Proposed new approach with a focus on best practice rather than on noise criteria. Explanation of how guidance document is meant to work covering assessment, criteria, work practices, consultation, and database, followed by facilitated discussions.
Coordinator: TBAThe Future for Acoustics in Australia (Plenary Forum)
Aim: Promote understanding and elicit views on the new Building Code of Australia.
Scope: Overview of the intent, and impact of implementation of BCA, fostering discussion on practical implementation and identification of improvements for the short and medium-term.
Coordinator: Marion Burgess
Aim: Promote awareness and elicit opinion on the best way forward on some key issues facing the acoustics profession.
Scope: Overview of the two identified major issues (education in acoustics, and government policy and attitude to acoustics), followed by views from representatives from a government agency and private industry, then an open forum discussion on the way forward for these important issues.
